Default (They Long To Be) Close To You

The Grammy Award-winning song for The Carpenters,, written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David. I play it fingerstyle on my Martin D-35 ,, arrangement is by the Australian guitarist Bill Tyers.

Very nice Chuck!

Also, nice to hear your D-35 again. Very nice arrangement.

Great job, Chuck. You got all the little nuances. I always liked that melody, even when it wasn’t cool to admit to liking the Carpenters!

I guess I’m old enough to say I love the carpenters. There were certainly a time when you couldn’t say that. But now I can appreciate a good songwriting and nice delivery and your cover was awesome.
